You know how great inventions seem so simple once someone has invented it? Here is a perfect example: Most modern homes, or renovated older ones, end up with recessed can lighting all over the place. It's cheap, it does the job and it's inoffensive. But it also has no style and looks like you cheaped out on the decor, or couldn't make a decision. On top of that, while it's inexpensive to install, taking them out has always required an electrician, a plaster guy, and then repainting.

When a company tries to pass a somewhat green product off as truly
eco-friendly, it's known as "greenwashing." Sometimes greenwashers
also advertise eco-friendly products for the sake of appearance, as
opposed to any actual earth-friendly motivation.
Here's how to tell when companies are more concerned
